Cool American // Tour Dates with Turtlenecked

Cool American have always had a tendency to be “great at parties,” with their self-described flavor of “Dorito” pop. We’ve released their upbeat new album, Infinite Hiatus, on cassette, while our friends at Good Cheer Records have taken care of your other favorite formats. The tracks on the release follow through with the band's past work in that Nate Tucker's ghoulish vocals (not too dissimilar from Elliott Smith) are as hauntingly beautiful as ever. Tucker notoriously delivers lyricism laced with casual self-reflection and brutal honestly without sounding mopey. Any sense of melancholy is erased by the erratic instrumental urgency found on the album. We think it'll brighten up your day as much as it does to ours.

Grab yourself a cassette here.

Announcing Six New Titles in Our Cassette Series

Last year we launched our first ever subscription—the idea was simple: a new cassette every month, for the whole calendar year. It was a lot of fun to curate and put together, but also pretty stressful to have to deliver something new every 30 days. Going into 2017, we decided to shelve the monthly subscription aspect (one subscription at a time here, people) but to ultimately keep the series going. So today we are very excited to announce the first half of the 2017 iteration of our cassette series!!

Featuring musicians from all over both stylistically and geographically, the series represents some of the most exciting music we’ve come across. Below is some background and a link to listen for each release.

Thanks for listening!!
